Breach of Contract
A nonprofit organization that provides recreational services entered into a contract with a company to pursue sponsorship development. After conflicts regarding billing issues, sponsorship contracts and fees, the company filed
a lawsuit against the organization alleging breach of contract, outrageous conduct and intentional interference with business relationships. During the trial it was found
the contract was poorly drafted by the vice president of the organization and several provisions were subject to different interpretations. A jury returned a verdict in favor of the sponsorship development company in the amount of $45,000. Defense costs totaled $155,000.
